Foreword: This book contains the proceedings of the 3rd International Conference on Information and Communication Technologies for Ageing Well and e-Health (ICT4AWE 2017) which was organized and sponsored by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication (INSTICC) and held in cooperation with ACM SIGACCESS - ACM’s Special Interest Group on Accessible Computing, JTTA - Japanese Telemedicine and Telecare Association, IsfTeH - the International Society for Telemedicine & eHealth, HON - Health On the Net Foundation, EUGMS - European Union Geriatric Medicine Society, IMIA - International Medical Informatics Association, ECHAlliance - European Connected Health Alliance, CATEL, ISG - International Society for Gerontechnology, AGE-WELL NCE - Aging Gracefully across Environments using Technology to Support Wellness, Engagement and Long Life NCE Inc. and HFES - Human Factors and Ergonomics Society. ICT4AWE aims to be an annual meeting point for those that study and apply Information and Communication Technologies for improving the quality of life of the elderly and for helping people stay healthy, independent and active at work or in their community along their whole life. ICT4AWE facilitates the exchange of information and dissemination of best practices, innovation and technical improvements in the fields of age-related health care, education, social coordination and ambient assisted living. This conference brought together researchers and practitioners interested in methodologies and applications related to the Information and Communication Technologies for Ageing Well and e-Health fields. It had four main topic areas, covering different aspects, including Ambient Assisted Living, Telemedicine and E-Health, Monitoring, Accessibility and HCI and Independent Living. We believe these proceedings demonstrate new and innovative solutions, and highlight technical problems in each field that are challenging and worthwhile. ICT4AWE 2017 received 32 paper submissions from 19 countries in all continents, of which 31% were accepted as full papers. The high quality of the papers received imposed difficult choices in the review process. To evaluate each submission, a double blind paper review was performed by the Program Committee, whose members are highly qualified independent researchers in the ICT4AWE topic areas. The high quality of the ICT4AWE 2017 programme was enhanced by two keynote lectures, delivered by experts in their fields, namely: Panagiotis D. Bamidis (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece) and Reima Suomi (University of Turku, Finland). All presented papers will be submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP, EI (Elsevier Index) and Scopus, as well as being made available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. Furthermore, a short list of presented papers will be selected and their authors will be invited to submit an extended version of their papers to be included in a forthcoming book of ICT4AWE Selected Papers to be published in CCIS Series by Springer Verlag during 2017. The best contributions to the conference and the best student submissions were distinguished with awards based on the best combined marks of paper reviewing, as assessed by the Program Committee, and the quality of the presentation at the conference venue. Building an interesting and successful program for the conference required the dedicated effort of many people. We would like to express our thanks to all participants. First of all, to the authors, whose quality work is the essence of this Conference. We would also like to express our gratitude to all members of the Program Committee and auxiliary reviewers, who helped us with their expertise and valuable time. Furthermore, we thank the invited speakers for their invaluable contribution and for taking the time to synthesize and prepare their talks. Finally, we gratefully acknowledge the professional support of the INSTICC team for all organizational processes. (More)
